NFTs, I kept seeing this acronym and, as an educator of many years standing, I felt it was my duty to understand this newish term in blockchain terminology. So, I watched a highly informative rap video on YouTube. It was circulated on the WhatsApp group, the Bigger Pie.
In reviewing the threads in this group time and time again, the lack of diversity and inclusion in the blockchain and technology world was discussed. The invisibility of women and the treatment of women often mentioned.
So even if women manage to break through and work in tech that is not the end of the story. This is not new – it is a recurring theme. Where are the male sponsors, allies and advocates?
As the Founder & CEO of ‘Amp Up Your Voice’ a progressive anti-racism Equality & Diversity consultancy, I partner with modern companies and organisations helping them to drive real change for an equal and inclusive work environment, to elevate their brand and be part of the Black Lives Matter movement.
However, this notably is not an easy journey, and it has become quite apparent that real change is moving at a glacial pace. But what exactly needs to happen to ensure that the playing field is levelled up and equity is the normality for Black and Ethnically Diverse individuals and groups?
